Cootamundra producers have answered the call with hundreds of bales of hay heading to Central West regions devastated by bushfires over the weekend. 

Paul Manwaring and Andrew Glover are currently coordinating a fodder run to leave Cootamundra on Saturday morning bound for the small town of Coolah. 

They already have 70 trucks committed and 2100 bales of hay.

A Facebook post on page – Helping Hand for a Mate on the Land – on Wednesday stated – “Overwhelmed is an understatement! This run is going to contribute a huge amount to a community that has lost so much, and its all because of the generosity that surrounds us!”

The post continued – “If there are any others wishing to be a part of this run we would love to reach a final target of 80 trucks.”
